We were here on a Sat night around 7 and there was a short wait, but well worth it. I have a food allergy (no, not gluten LOL) and it was graciously accommodated. We had the snapper which was served over a cream sauce with corn...fresh & delicate & delicious, and the Pork Saltimboca, also excellent.

The wait staff were super and the food was really good. Eggplant Parmesan and the Thai Salmon salad are both dishes that we would do again. You can order the half sizes of the eggplant dish and not overstuff yourself.

I came here with family, it was crowded and we were told about a 15 minute wait. They placed us at a table in less than 10 minutes. The food was delicious, and our server was very friendly although we had long waits for our wine order and our food order, and then again waiting for the check. That aside,... More

Went Sunday early afternoon for brunch. Wait was 20 minutes, but allowed us to visit a few local shops. Server was great, food good and prices were reasonable. We had our kids with us and was pleasant. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Dunedin, FL.

I like to eat light and so I am able to get their white bean soup and house salad and be satisfied. There are times I have come here to eat more and the meals there are excellent. A must try when your in downtown

Cafe Alfresco has delicious food. You really can't go wrong with anything you order here. Today as I usually have, I had a lobster roll which was loaded with large chunks of lobster, not overdone with mayonnaise, and just delicious! Two in my party had the fried chicken sandwich and a pulled pork sandwich which were both fantastic. The lobster... More

We started off by having a small bowl of there chicken noodle soup, which was some of the best soup I've had at a restaurant. Then I had the NY strip and my boyfriend had the... More

We ate here on New Years Eve. There was a bit of a wait, about half an hour. The checkin hostess clearly wasn't happy about working New Years Eve. When I went up to give my name she was complaining about this with a friend/regular. After giving my name she just returned to her conversation. I had to ask her... More

Well run restaurant by the Pinellas County Florida Trail.....easy access if you are biking the trail OR visiting the little village area (plenty of parking) of lovely Dunedin, FL. Locals visit here frequently and this Café earns its good reputation. Hearty sandwiches on a January afternoon were yummy ! Full bar with a well-versed bartender. Service was superb.
